    Default For the Love of all Frugal Challenges!

    I just wanted to say, in one large thread, how much I love reading these!! I'm glad that there are many of us doing them because its lovely to see everyones takes on how they approach situations. They may not all be identical, but I think we are all trying to reach a rather similar goal - a frugal lifestyle that is full of good times rather than deprived moments!!

    So, to everyone old and new to a frugal challenge:

    Thank you for updating your posts and sharing your experiences with us!!!!

    Agreed! Actually this is very immature but I am just about to pay off a rather large bill and the first thing I thought of was "Yay I'll get to update my siggy!" not "yay I'm handling my money well" ......I may need help!

    I'm with ya! I do the "woo-hoo! I get to tell the FVer's!!". And I'm excited about seeing the debt go away... I just love that there are people I can share the excitement with! You all "get it"!

    I have to agree with all of you, the challenges are movtivational and very inspirational......I think its great when someone comes up with a new way to inspire others to jump on a "band wagon" and move on with the challenge. We all learn new ways, easier way, and keep each other company on the journey!
    Think about this;
    Watch your thoughts; they become words.
    Watch your words; they become actions.
    Watch your actions; they become habits.
    Watch your habits; they become character.
    Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
